Meet Haley Duggan
Hi RWM readers, I’m Haley Duggan. I’m married to Brian Duggan, and I am a dog mom to two black-and-white mutts. I am a Rosewood Market and Lululemon ambassador. Before all that, my story in South Carolina begins almost ten years ago.
I moved to Columbia in 2009 to start my undergraduate degree in Public Health. An athletic scholarship for swimming led me to the University of South Carolina. After an injury, I found healing on my mat at Yoga Masala.
After starting my Master’s Degree in Public Health, I wanted to dive deeper into my yoga practice, so, in 2014, I completed my 200HR teacher training with Kyra Strasberg at Yoga Masala. Since then, I have deepened my training and understanding in anatomy and restorative yoga with Judith Hanson Lasater and Roger Cole.
Beyond teaching classes at Yoga Masala, I also help others find their own healing through an ancient energy practice called Reiki. Sometimes it helps to see things from a different point of view to gain more clarity, insight, and understanding, and the practice of Reiki can help guide us there.

Through my experiences and background, I’ve found the joy of helping others. So, at the start of 2016, I began crafting my vision for @vinyasachick. I wanted to create a place for people to find soul support, guidance, and humor, so this past April, I launched my website. Each week I write a blog, and every other week I post a new podcast episode. Whether it’s an empowering image or message, a blog post about how to sage your house, a rundown on all things crystals, a yoga class, or a podcast, I wanted to create a site that reaches out to all and helps others to work on their best self. My goal is to help you feel connected, even on days you don’t leave the house, and even if we’re 2,000 miles away.
Becoming an Ambassador
At the beginning of this year, I received some health news that was a call-to-action to make some serious changes. Feeling underwhelmed by the lack choices out there for gluten-free, almond-free, and dairy-free (yup, I’m a blast to dine with), I found myself a regular at Rosewood Market. I shop at RWM because I know if I have a question or doubt, they’ll take the time to find the answer. They never make me feel like a pain for my food allergies. I’m beyond grateful for their dedication to their customers’ needs! I’m so glad to be a part of this community and for all the exciting things to come. I look forward to meeting more of you during my time as a Rosewood Market Ambassador.
